Ottawa Senators vs New York Rangers Game Preview 12/2/2022

By

The Ottawa Senators head to New York for a Friday night matchup with the Rangers from Madison Square Garden. Puck-drop is scheduled for 7pm EST between the two Eastern Conference teams.

The Senators enter this game with a record of 8-13-1, sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic Division. They have a record of 4-5-1 over their last ten games overall. New York enters this contest with a record of 11-9-4, sitting in the middle of the Metropolitan Division. They are 5-4-1 over their last ten games overall.

Ottawa is scoring 3.05 goals per game on average and are allowing 3.36 goals on average to opponents. Goalie Cam Talbot has been the bright spot for the Senators this season as he has a .918 save percentage. He has limited the damage even if the rest of the team hasn’t played up to par.

The Rangers enter scoring three goals per game on average and are surrendering 2.79 goals per game on average. Their defense has been impressive this season so far and going against a team like Ottawa, it could hold serve again.

This has the feelings of a lower scoring game between two teams that struggle to generate offense at times. It could be a defensive battle from the Garden.

Prediction: Ottawa Senators 2, New York Rangers 1

I like Ottawa in this game tonight. I think put together a good game plan to limt the New York chances and come away with the road win here.
